in virginia today about some important parts of health care reform that kick in tomorrow. >> number one, paul already mentioned, the issue of lifetime limits. that is not going to be the rule anymore after tomorrow. number two, pre-existing conditions for children. number three, we are going to make sure that if young people don't have health insurance through their employer, that they can stay on their parents' health insurance up the age of 26. number four, you're going to be able to choose your doctor and not have to go through some network in an emergency situation. >> well, apparently that is not all true. item two, health care could have aren't for children with pre-existing conditions has now hit a snag. some major health insurance companies have chosen to stop selling children-only policies in states like california, illinois, florida and connecticut. is there anything lawmakers can do to fix that snag? congresswoman loretta sanchez, democratic, california, joins us from capitol hill. congresswoman, you know, the biggest selling point to the middle class, it is fair to say, not just t
of virginia. and susan paige is the waugs bureau chief for "usa today." it's not fabulous just because of you, larry, but it is one hell of a school. here are larry's numbers. they were out the other day. i want to start with your thoughts and predictions. currently 47 house seats go republican, enough of a shift to get power to the republicans. eight or nine pickups of the senate seat the ten they need to make it. a net gain of eight governors going to the republican side. a very big win for the republican party. not a complete shutout yet, apparently. and a new "usa today" galup poll says voters prefer a republican candidate across the country by 49% to 43%, which should be enough of a percentage, six-point difference to give them control as well. let me start with larry sabato. just to let you capsulize your current prediction, what is it? >> it is exactly what you suggested. republicans taking over the house, not by an enormous margin but by a decent margin. having a chance to take over the senate but it's not there yet and may never be. their biggest advantage and probably greatest break
donald of virginia. he said that no later than a week before she's scheduled to be killed, which is september 23rd, he will decide whether he's going to be granting her clemency but we're not sure what his decision is going to be on that. >> back to teresa and her mental capacity, she was tested and tell me a little bit more about what those tests revealed about her mental disability. >> she took two iq tests. one she scored a 73 and the other a 70. 70 and below is considered legally mentally disabled. she was ruled borderline functioning, the stage above intellectually disabled and therefore she can still be legally sentenced to death although it's very controversial. >> and the plot that she was convicted of was said to be because of insurance money, $250,000. but then you have this note that rotney fuller wrote before he committed suicide. from your report, that's not admissible. explain why. >> it is inadmissible because there's a limit to the kind of evidence that you can present before an appeals court after a sentence like this has already been handed down. and i spoke with ms. lewis' defen
tomorrow afternoon, heading from iowa to virginia." with a theme throughout the papers this morning, divided government. a response to the president's weekly radio address yesterday, "can the two parties work together in the next congress"? for republicans, 202-737-0001. for democrats, 202-737-0002. for independents, 202-628-0205. yesterday from "the washington post," based on a weekly radio address and internet address yesterday -- host: also this morning, "politics and policy." host: we will get your phone calls in a moment, but first year is the president yesterday in his weekly address. >> many of the republican leaders were amongst the architects of the failed policy. grounded in the same moral philosophy, cut the taxes for millionaires and billionaires, cut the rules for wall street, cut loose the middle class to fend for itself. that is the echo of a disastrous decade that we cannot afford to relive. host: paul pearson has this, "cough up in the middle. what is a president who do"? "had the president realized earlier that he never could have won over corporate america, he nev
. this morning, obama holds a backyard chat in falls church, virginia, about health care reform so the president this morning is putting the spotlight on new benefits that kick in, as you said, tomorrow called the patient's bill of rights. the provisions include free immunizations for kids, no more lifetime health insurance coverage limits. no denial of coverage to kids with pre-existing conditions and young adults will be able to stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. now, these are significant. but a reminder, most of the big pricey changes like requiring everyone to have insurance don't kick in until 2014. so some changes tomorrow but the rest down the road. >> all right. julie live for us in d.c. thanks very much for that update. >> poll showing most americans don't know what's in the health care bill. that's part of the problem. >> that's right. it will dribble out over the next couple of years. all right, we're starting to learn what is in bob woodward's brand new and as brian mentioned 16 books. 15 have been best sellers. that's it right there called "obama's war." essentially
's interesting, you know, it's the same thing that happened to green in west virginia where popular governor is now finding to be a tough fight in a state where barack obama is not popular. in florida, you get a cross fire. >> we're going to invite all three of them to join us in the situation room between now and november 2. we're going to invite all of the senate candidates to join us. because the voters have a right to take a look at these candidates. so thanks very much, david, for that. >>> by the way, we have more poll numbers coming in on key battle ground states in california, in illinois, and alaska. this new cnn/"time" magazine poll, stand by, we'll share those numbers. some will, in fact, surprise you. >>> up next, we eerl going 're update you on the horrific bus crash in washington, d.c. people are trapped right now. we have a producer on the scene. then, major victory for emergency workers on the scene in the harrowing moments after the 9/11 terror attacks. new information coming in from capitol hill. >>> we've been following this bus crash outside of washington, d.c. in bethesd
virginia. we picked virginia to sort of look at how the president is doing two years later because he won that state, first democrat to do that since 1964 back in 2008. and yet we found republicans and then democrats, independents, who voted for the president in 2008 saying this is not moving, turning around quickly enough. and one of the people we spoke to is reverend -- pastor mariner. and he said a lot of his parishioners, including african-americans who were proud to support the president in 2008 are saying what happened? >> people don't seem excited about voting. they don't seem energetic. what difference would it make? we've got the first african-american president in office, but look at where we are now. >> what do you tell them when they seem disappointed? they had a lot of hope, but now they're disappointed. >> i don't know if they're disappointed at him, disappointed in the process. i think they're disappointed in overall this functional attitude in congress. >> and that's an important point to make. i heard that from other voters, as well. even some republicans say they voted f
. virginia, go ahead. caller: hi. i wanted to speak on nancy pelosi in support of her voice for aiding the people. one of the things that i think that has happened is the republicans have controlled the message. however, at the end of the day when it comes time for them to stand forth for the voting, people are going to find out that the republicans are selling a product without instructions. and that is going to be detrimental to them and their message that they've been continuing to churn out. it's a marketing ploy. and it's a very good one at this moment, but i think when if educated population decides to actually tune back in and say let's get on the band wagon they're going to find out that the republicans have been selling poison to the people. host: so you're saying thingless change as we get close to november caller: absolutely. i don't necessarily believe in all polls. i do watch them. but i do believe that there is an issue right now with the people that they're calling. i don't think that every person's household has been called and i think they're targeting certain areas to

the candidates that could possibly challenge the democratic majority. host: all right. virginia. joe, you say, no. why? caller: i am not over all happy with what is going on. the reason why i say that is we -- even with the tea party candidates, the only thing we would do is slow down the change. there has not really been any change. understand,don't that i find quite pertinent, with as much discontent as there is from voters -- voting with former democratic candidates as well as republican candidates, while a third party hasn't developed as in with what ross perot? i'm afraid the tea party candidate would do nothing more than to split the votes, we're in a general election the democrats would come back on top. host: on our 20 page -- twitter page -- that comes from helen. san diego. joanne. you say, yes, you are happy with the tea party-backed candidate. caller: i am thrilled. we have a great slate in california with carly fiorina alabama and meg whitman -- host: what she tea party? caller: i have to confess i have not gone out to one of the events, but i am thrilled that people in our country a
and didn't need caffeine because the speakers were firing them up. and of course, virginia governor bob mcdonnell spoke and the thing that had their attention focused, were the results of the straw poll. who people think will win and should win the republican nomination in 2012. >> mike huckabee missed coming in first by 11 votes. so, that, you know, pence couldn't get all the attention, but huck, i guess, a crowd favorite. >> and last year, mike huckabee won and this year pence was the winner, huckabee second. romney third, gingrich fourth. and palin who didn't go because she was in des moines at the g.o.p. fun raiser came in fifth place. >> who people chose for vice-president was interesting, he chose mike pence and he had to withdraw his name from that and then it became sarah palin was the winner of the vice-president one. rick santorum, paul ryan, demint and mike huckabee last. >> mike pence not somebody our viewers know a tremendous amount about. congressman from indiana second arguably most high profile because governor mitch daniels, a lot of folks across the state and country l

is there, outside of d.c., sterling, virginia, this morning. a lot of what's in the pledge seems to be classic republican ideas that we've heard for some time now, years, as a meat of fact, anything new in here? >> reporter: well, i think what's new and what's most interesting is the way that house republicans are trying to make the tea parties voters, especially understand that they are trying to listen to them. i think we have some examples of points that i saw were clear indications that they were trying to reach out. little things. for example, weekly votes on spending cuts. a pledge to cut congress's budget. a net hiring freeze of nonsecurity federal employees. and a vote on every regulation costing more than $100 million. those, each of those, is a nod to the idea that many in the base, you know, you hear republicans talking about this rebellion. rebellion is in large part about spending. so these are little things that the house republicans say they will try to do to address that. in addition to that there are some items in here that address the whole idea at that governme

: on this list from "the washington journal" to have a list." west virginia, carl, tea party member, what you think of this call for political pragmatism? caller: i would vote for a party that supported small government. was disappointed in george bush jr., who increased the size of government. i have been to these key party rallies as far as i can see is just a bunch of good american people who are for smaller government, they are about getting government out of the way and letting the economy boomer. i want to tell you, this is the most left-wing program i have ever seen. host: left wing? are you there? we lost him. clearwater, florida. caller: one year ago these not jobs were bringing a loaded assault rifles to peaceful town hall meetings and now they are burning books in gainesville, florida. this is crystal love -- krystalnacht all over again. host: i do not think you can make the correlation between tea party members and the preacher in florida. caller: b disagree. remember, the definition of fascism is the far right. and i will say, i call them teabaggers. they are dangerous. host: we
. >> reporter: the president met with middle-class voters in fairfax, virginia. >> i'm a massage therapist. >> i've got a crick in my neck right here. >> i bet you do. >> reporter: and there he continued to push the idea that republicans have a stranglehold on a middle-class tax cut and are holding it hostage until it's extended to wealthier americans as well. >> because wages and incomes had flatlined for middle-class families, they should definitely get an extension of the tax cuts that were instituted in 2001, 2003. >> reporter: over the weekend house republican leader john boehner essentially gave in, saying he'd go along with continuing those bush tax cuts for middle-class voters even if the cuts for higher wage earners are allowed to expire. >> if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. >> reporter: but leader boehner realized he was out on a limb all by himself. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said senate republicans are united against any tax increase. >> only in washington could someone propose a tax hike as an antidote to a reces
say that at that backyard in northern virginia yesterday. you know, he said that -- i'm in this wrestling match with john boehner, but boehner was the one who came out on sunday sounding like he was ready to make a deal. are we making a deal? or are we having a wrestling match here? it's interesting to hear the president come out and say that. couldn't the minority leader argue he was simply trying to govern? >> no, certainly -- certainly he could argue that. and what you will hear from his aides is that he was trying to undercut a white house argument that obviously they were fearful was taking hold. and that is that republicans are holding tax cuts for the middle class hostage for tax cuts for the wealthy. but what you're hearing from republicans sources on this is that perhaps boehner tipped his hand a little too soon. that this was something he could've held out on as they argue for this. obviously in the house, the republicans don't have a whole lot of control about what's going to pass. and there are a lot of democrats who, you know, feel the way republicans do a

. the old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs like this little one, they're closing a big plant in virginia, 200 jobs, $30 an hour jobs. they're going to china. 2007, the democrat congress says we've got to save energy and save the planet. global warming is coming. so we've got to get rid of those old incandescent light bulbs and go to the next compact fluorescent lights, etc., etc., they are made in china. now you're seeing the results of it. >> those crazy little pigtail lights, the cfl's they want you to buy at home depot and stuff like that. we've heard such a big push from the manufacturers. you got to use these because they're good for the environment. what's ironic, stuart, is the fact that u.s. scientists invented the cfl light and now what we've done is we've exported all the jobs to china! >> yes, these 200 jobs go straight to china. now, the president -- >> used to be a lot more. remember back in the days when the united states of america used to make stuff! now we don't make anything. >> right. manufacturing jobs down 40% since 1979. jobs like this one. now, the president is go
